Judges Know Better than Anyone Why Attorneys Need Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

The NACLNC® Private Apprenticeship group had a great experience last week when we went to court. There was a trial going on and I introduced myself to the court officer. I told him who we were, Certified Legal Nurse Consultants there to observe the trial process. He then went into the judge’s chambers and let the judge know who we were and our reason for attending. Before the trial got started, the judge invited us into his chambers. While there, the judge briefed us on the case we were about to see. He also discussed the parties and players so we had a little background while observing the trial.

The trial itself was a great learning experience. The judge even included us and educated us during the trial. We got to hear the cross-exam of the plaintiff expert, see how they use exhibits, observe how depositions are used in a trial and of course witness many objections. The case was presented by the plaintiff attorney and then the defense attorney presented his case. We also had the opportunity to observe the closing and it was interesting to note each attorney’s strengths and weaknesses as they did so.

My Promise to Certified Legal Nurse Consultants for 2014

I’ve been mentoring Certified Legal Nurse Consultants for decades now, so you could say I occasionally repeat myself. And repeat myself I did in 2013. Tom says I don’t just repeat myself with CLNC consultants, I do it at home, at the office and sometimes even when I’m alone (LOL – I think). My response, “I only repeat myself PRN.”
